Visiting Speaker – Keith W Roberts

Rev Treacy by Chambre Hardman

Rev.Treacy by Edward Chambré-Hardman

Keith gave a fascinating account of his PhD research on a Liverpool-based commercial portrait photographer, Edward Chambré-Hardman (1898-1988), who practiced between 1923 to 1966. He left behind a vast collection of photographic work including portraiture, landscape and topographical cityscape works, all of which are now archived within the Central Liverpool Library. The focus of this project specifically concerns the commercial portraiture component of Hardman’s archive, which consists of approximately 140,000 individual sheet negatives.
